Trump’s Latest Saudi Statement is Hair-Raising

This latest statement from the President is alarming, to say the least.

Weeks ago, Saudi Arabia committed one of the most heinous acts of anti-journalistic revenge of all time with the horrific killing of Jamal Khashoggi.

Khashoggi, who had spent much of his career attempting to keep the Saudi Royal Family in check, walked into the Saudi consulate in Turkey weeks ago, never to be seen again.  The details of his demise were abhorrent, with rumors of his body being dismembered alive, and then possibly carried directly through the airpot in Istanbul to be disposed of elsewhere.

A vast majority of the world has accepted that this brazen act was carried out at the behest of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman due to a glut of evidence.

Now, even after being briefed with all of the gory details of Khashoggi’s death, President Trump has apparently sided with Saudi Arabia in the matter, raising more than a few eyebrows.

The president said he understands many lawmakers would like to see a tougher stance against Riyadh “for political or other reasons” but indicated he would only accept suggested punishments “if they are consistent with the absolute security and safety of America,” a sign he will not approve severe punishments on the kingdom.

Trump’s announcement came in a 638-word statement issued by the White House press office. It contained eight exclamation points and began with the phrases “America First!” and “the world is a very dangerous place!”

He also repeated the Saudi government’s claim that Khashoggi was an “enemy of the state” and “a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.” But the president said his decision to stand by Saudi Arabia was “in no way based on that” and said he believed “this is an unacceptable and horrible crime.”

The US relationship with Saudi Arabia has long been a complicated one, due to the Middle Eastern nation’s stranglehold on the world oil industry and their consistently abhorrent record of human rights abuses.

Manchin Shreds AOC, Says ‘She’s More Active On Twitter Than Anything Else’

Published

Despite the fact that the mainstream media has prematurely called the 2020 presidential election in favor of Democratic nominee Joe Biden, there’s a lot of hostilities and division ripping through the party right now. Particularly between Sen. Joe Manchin and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Manchin recently conducted an interview with the NY Times, which was posted up on Monday, in which he took aim at the diehard socialist congresswoman, claiming that she’s far more active on Twitter than she is in Congress. via Newsmax: His words came after a Nov. 11 tweet of his own where he had taken aim at calls to defund the police. He wrote: “Defund the police? Defund the police? Defund, my butt. I’m a proud West Virginia Democrat. We are the party of working men and women. We do not have some crazy socialist agenda, and we do not believe in defunding the police.” Ocasio-Cortez had fired back in a Nov. 12 tweet in which she posted a photo of herself seated behind Manchin at President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech. In the photo, she appeared to be giving Manchin an icy stare as he applauded. In the Tuesday interview with the Times, Manchin addressed the tweet, saying: “I guess she put the dagger stare on me. I don’t know the young lady — I really don’t. I never met her. I’m understanding she’s not that active with her bills or in committee. She’s more active on Twitter than anything else.” A spokeswoman for AOC, Lauren Hitt, came out to defend the congresswoman by stating that she has submitted more amendments than 90 percent of other freshmen folk in Congress. “The congresswoman has earned a reputation as a tough, prepared member in committee hearings,” Hitt stated. Manchin isn’t exactly wrong here. AOC spends a whole…

Democratic Mayor Of San Jose Busted Allegedly Violating Coronavirus Rules For Thanksgiving

Published

The Democratic mayor of the city of San Jose, California is catching tremendous heat over accusations that he ignored COVID-19 restrictions after he urged citizens in the city to “cancel the big gatherings this year and focus on keeping each other safe.” Well, we all know how much the radical left in this country loves hypocrisy, so not shocked by this a bit. This really demonstrates how liberal “elites” view themselves as above the law, while they look at their constituents as peons. via Daily Wire: NBC Bay Area reported Monday that Democrat San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo appeared to “have broken health protocols in celebrating Thanksgiving with family members outside of his own household.” Reporters from the local affiliate learned that he celebrated Thanksgiving with his elderly parents, which his office later confirmed, with “an unknown number of other guests.” His office did not disclose how many people attended the dinner, how many different households attended, and whether those who attended wore masks. “This is a private event – not public,” Liccardo’s chief of staff, Jim Reed stated. “We are going to redraw the line between what is personal and what is public because that line has become blurred.” On the day before Thanksgiving, Liccardo tweeted, “Cases are spiking, in part because we’re letting our guard (and masks) down with family & friends. Let’s cancel the big gatherings this year and focus on keeping each other safe.” https://twitter.com/sliccardo/status/1331576931125379082 “While few details about Liccardo’s Thanksgiving celebration have been released, it appears the gathering did elude guidelines frequently touted by the Santa Clara County Public Health Department, aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19,” NBC Bay Area said in their report. “A recent spike in coronavirus cases has prompted tighter restrictions across the Bay Area and the potential for California to exceed…
